(Hemiptera: Reduviidae: Triatominae), the epi- Triatoma dimidiata demiologically most important Chagas disease vector in Central America and a secondary vector in Mexico and Species delimitation northern South America, has only been investigated by one multi-copy nuclear gene (Internal Transcribed Spacer Biogeography – 2) and a few mitochondrial genes. We examined 450 specimens sampled across most of its native range from Phylogeny Mexico to Ecuador using reduced representation next-generation sequencing encompassing over 16,000 single Chagas disease nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). Using a combined phylogenetic and species delimitation approach we
